Hope you didn't miss the fantastic event in the morning sky, Monday, December 7.
Venus blitzed and dazzled-- showoff--as occultation occurred. Occultation is just a fancy word for eclipse. Sparkles showed up on one side of the moon only to disappear behind it and show up on the other side. Fast but fantastic and visible with the naked eye. Imagine if you'd had a telescope! Anyone with pictures taken here, please send to The Garden Island Newspaper.
By the way, in late December and early January, if you look in the right part of the sky you can see the Southern Cross. Look in the Southern sky briefly before dawn. It stands upright but quite low in the sky. Look for the constellation Cassiopeia, the Queen seated on her throne who lights up Hawaiian skies in winter evenings. As she sets, the Southern Cross rises.
